Report: Devean George blocks Kidd trade!
 
ESPN (Marc Stein) reports: With the New Jersey Nets poised to complete a blockbuster deal to send Jason Kidd back to Dallas on Wednesday night, Mavericks reserve forward Devean George has unexpectedly exercised his right to block the trade, according to NBA front-office sources. Sources close to the situation told ESPN.com that the teams verbally agreed to the deal earlier Wednesday and were preparing to submit the trade for league approval when George informed the Mavericks that he wouldn’t consent to being included in the deal, which is his right based on a rare provision in his one-year contract.

Nah, Dallas can sub others in. Worst comes to worst, you use Van Horn as a tiny expirer.

It will still get done but it will be tomorrow.

Why the hell does he have a no trade clause? NBA should just strike it from his contract and move on.

Wow, they gonna have to buy this dude out so he can go where he wants.

He is always welcome to LA if they'd ship Karl to the D League.

I thought it was some joke when I heard it. It's not like he's the center piece anyways.

Wow, so a scrub who is nothing more than an expiring contract thrown in to make the salaries match just killed a blockbuster trade.

If I were Cuban, I'd make the trade work without George, then call George into my office, ream his bench warming butt out from here to next Tuesday, and then cut him!

I doubt this kills the trade totally, but man, George is gonna have a bullseye on this back after this stunt!

It´s standard procedure, every superstar has a no trade clause. George has three rings.
